Denver Reggae Social Club
Denver Reggae Social Club
The Denver Reggae Social Club is dedicated to the celebration of reggae music through the preservation of its roots. Focusing on deep cuts both classic and modern, the group pays homage to the innovators that paved the way for Jamaican music around the world as well as the development of the music in the Caribbean, England and the United States. The Denver Reggae Social Club is a living sound archive with awareness and respect to reggae traditions and is faithful to the performance of the music.
Green Buddha
Green Buddha
Grooves in the service of songs, Green Buddha is that and more. Original Colorado music spawned from funk, reggae and soul, to ska and dub. The result is a blend of psychedelia with melodies and hooks galore.
The best bands are formed by chemistry not design and their debut album Small Town proves the point. From the minds of Seth Strickland, Otis Lande and Jonny Jyemo, along with fresh textures from Mikey B3 on Keys and Eric Benny Bloom (Lettuce) leading the brass, the album makes for a strong brew indeed.
Green Buddha is in its true element performing live, whether as a power trio, “Got B3” Quartet or full Bloom of brass monster, this band brings the heat.
“No Coast Reggae” A fresh incarnation of style from musicians with deep roots. The members of Buddha have brought their varied musical backgrounds together with an ear towards creating a distinct new reggae sound; a sound that speaks to Colorado’s vibe.
Influences range widely from classics like Toots and the Stones, to the hybrids of the 90’s like Fishbone, Chili Peppers, Sublime and 311, as well as contemporaries like John Browns Body, Black Seeds and Slightly Stoopid, not to mention personal & family connections to greats like the Subdudes and Aquarium Rescue Unit.
While most of the songs are written by Seth Strickland, (a surrogate child of the Subdudes), it is Otis Lande (son of jazz legend Art Lande) who leads the band on musical direction. Add in one Jyemo, a lefty world beat drummer of supernatural acumen and you have Green Buddha.
Collierad

An American dub and reggae connoisseur previously based out of Hong Kong, The Groove Thief [TGT] is now living in Denver, Colorado, USA. Including the influential Pomegranate club residency (an A/V collaboration with ▶▶△) underground dance mecca oma, TGT promoted countless events featuring local & international artists while in Hong Kong. Here in Colorado with his Pomegranate Hi Fi sound system, he’s organized backyard boogies, guerrilla pop-ups, and sponsored collaborations, plus he’s a co-coordinator of the Reggae On Da Fax: Irie Fridays weekly, Denver’s only night celebrating roots reggae and sound system culture.

As a DJ, he’s supported numerous international artists including Cojie [Mighty Crown], Iration Steppas, Mungo’s Hi Fi, and Tippa Irie. Since 2011 he has released dozens of mashups and over 50 mixes – including guest spots for Bass Music China, Dub Temple Records, Dub.com, Monkey Radio India, NiceUp, and “The Saturday Skank” (RTHK Radio 3). His 4:20 mix for 2017 has been particularly well-received, with over 20k plays. Since moving, TGT has also found a home at community radio station KGNU, regularly hosting the “Reggae Transfusion” and “Dub Palace” shows.

TGT co-founded the Pomegranate Sounds label in 2017, a creative endeavor with ▶▶△. In December, he released his debut production work on the label with collaborator Scotty McD: the Winter Showcase EP. The seven-track is a dub-drenched journey from hiphop through to downtempo and features guests Hijinx and Mama Kush.

An experienced, versatile, and well-regarded journalist, TGT diligently maintains his own website dedicated to In-Depth Coverage of Underground Sounds, specifically dub, reggae, and local music: TheGrooveThief.com. From 2014-2016 he wrote dozens of clubbing articles for Time Out Hong Kong magazine, and he still regularly covers the reggae scene for NiceUp.
